A Greek tanker started to leak kerosene Tuesday after it was involved in collision with a Cypriot container ship off the Netherlands, the Dutch coastguard said.

"There is a hole in the tanker's waterline which has triggered a leak," Jan Regeling, a spokesman for the Dutch coastguard, told AFP.

The accident, which occurred around 30 kilometers (20 miles) off The Hague, did not cause any injuries, according to the Dutch ANP news agency.
